Image Gallery

Yamantaka (夜魔徳 (ヤマンタカ) ), also known as Daiitoku (大威徳 (ダイイトクフ) ), is a high-level Myōō-class Demon.[1]

Appearance

Yamantaka appears as a large, four-armed, ox-headed figure cloaked in black flames.

Personality

Yamantaka seems to be eager to go to battle and let his power rage, however, this could simply be because his partner, Renzo Shima, refuses to call on him often.

History

When Renzo was a kid, Yamantaka became his familiar.[2]

Synopsis

Illuminati arc

Renzo summons Yamantaka in his fight with Nemu Takara. After defeating Nemu's numerous Galatea, Renzo uses the black flames to knock out Izumo Kamiki.[3]

When she tries to escape, Izumo summons Ukemochi and Miketsu. After one of Uke's paws is burned off,[4] Miketsu attacks Renzo and is consumed by black flames. Uke then attacks and is stabbed and burned away.[5]

Powers & Abilities

Black Flames: These flames burn spirits and demons but leave the physical body unharmed.[6] Briefly touching humans with the flames will knock them unconscious.[7]

  • Flame-Tipped Vajra Spear (火頭金剛槍 (カトウコンゴウソウ)  Katou Kongou Sou): Renzo recites, "Daiitoku Fun'nu Youketsu" (大威徳忿怒要訣 (ダイイトクフンヌヨウケツ) ), and creates a black-flame spearhead at the top of his K'rik.[8]
  • Killing Fire Wheel (火車輪斬 (カシャリンザン)  Kasharinzan): Renzo swings his K'rik, releasing a spinning fire disk. It is first used against Ukemochi.[9]
  • Ground Crawling Flames (地這火 Jibai Hi): Renzo recites, "Daiitoku Fun'nu Youketsu" (大威徳忿怒要訣 (ダイイトクフンヌヨウケツ) ), and touches the top of his K'rik to the ground. Black flames run along the ground and consume the target.[10]

Quotes

  • (To Renzo Shima) "Finally, about time... I was just itching for an outburst." (待ちかねたぞ...丁度暴れたくて仕方がなかった所だ Machikaneta zo... Chōdo abaretakute shikata ga nakatta tokoroda)[1]

Trivia

  • Yamantaka is one of the Five Great Wisdom Kings of Shingon Buddhism.
    • In Buddhism, the process of removing oneself from the cycle of reincarnation, or terminating death, is referred to as Yamantaka. This presents a certain amount of irony as Yamantaka's black flames burn the soul of their target, hence preventing demons from reincarnating.
